Gap year overseas & Youth Allowance
General: Posted 26-6-09 Deadline - No Deadline
I have received this infro: Places are still available in 2010 with Lattitude Global Volunteering!Even though our deadline has passed we still have over 200 places available in numerous countries for enriching gap year experiences. Projects still available for 2010 include:assisting in hospitals and community centres in Japan teaching in Poland working in an outdoor camp or residential home in the UK supporting disadvantaged communities in South Africa teaching English in Vietnam or China leading adventures in Canadian outdoor campsFor a full listing of projects available see www.lattitude.org.au. Youth Allowance The proposed changes to Youth Allowance recently announced by the Federal Government have understandably created concern for some students wanting to take a gap year from next year. Under the existing system, students need to earn approximately $19,500 within 18 months of finishing school to quality for the Youth Allowance. We currently support our returned volunteers with their applications to Centrelink by providing a statement of earnings, which includes the cost of accommodation and food as supplied by their host and any pocket money earned, that Centrelink include as part of earnings for Youth Allowance eligibility.Under the proposed changes students will need to work 30 hours a week for 18 months (within 2 years of finishing school) to qualify. The Senate are due to vote on the changes, and if approved they will come into effect from 1 January 2010. We are currently discussing options with Centrelink to possibly provide a statement of hours worked during a Lattitude placement as part of any new requirements, if implemented. We will keep you updated with any confirmed changes and approvals we obtain. With the proposed eligibility changes to requiring students to work 30 hours a week for 18 months, most students will need to defer their uni placements for two years to qualify. At present Australian universities generally allow placements to be deferred for 12 months only, which has been another concerning implication of the proposed changes. It's pleasing to see that one of Melbourne's universities recently announced they will now allow students to defer to two years and several other universities are considering offering the same. New country for 2010 - Japan!
We have exciting new projects opening up in Japan from March 2010! Volunteers will be able to gain invaluable experience for future medical or health related studies working in various departments in local hospitals, including Red Cross Hospitals. Opportunities are also available to really support the locals helping out in community homes and centres.
